No, for reals. He actually said that. President Obama actually said that he knows more about Judaism than any other President, because he read about it. Also, some of his best friends are Jewish. And he said this with what we have to assume was a straight face!

More from The Weekly Standard.

In the meeting, Obama reportedly boasted about his knowledge of Judaism, telling the leaders that he thinks he knows more “about Judaism” than all past presidents. He said he gained this knowledge of Judaism from reading.

Obama … stressed he probably knows about Judaism more than any other president, because he read about it,” Haaretz reports. “[He] wondered how come no one asks Speaker of the House of Representatives John Boehner or Senate minority leader Mitch McConnel [sic] about their support to Israel.”

Similarly, he said to the group, “I [am] not going to tell you again how I even feel about Israel, but why [are] we still talking about it?”

He then suggested that he should not be questioned about his commitment to the Jewish state because “all his friends in Chicago were Jewish – and at the beginning of his political career he was accused of  being a puppet of the Israel lobby,” Haaretz reports.

Sheesh, people, why the suspicion? He used the old “some of my best friends” trope and everything! And he read a book. Not his own book…not even his own wife has read that…but he has read some books. Case. Closed.

So, he doesn’t know anything about the atrocities committed against the Jewish in death camps, but he totally knows Judaism the bestest of the best. Because, books. Silly rubes just probably don’t understand the “nuance” of reading. We also wonder which books he has read. Perhaps the books he has read are like the pastor to whom he listens? Or maybe they were the same kind of books he read to learn to speak “Austrian?”

No, no. It’s bigotry, natch. See, it was further reported that President Obama went on to say that people thinking that he isn’t a friend of Israel is just all a result of Republican “bigotry.” Now seeing and reacting to the Obama administration’s atrocious record as pertains to Israel is bigotry. It seems truth is now a “dog whistle” code word.

Once again, Twitter users weigh in to provide another Teachable Moment ™. The President has acted stupidly.

    As a young Indonesian student, he read all about the Jews in the koran.

    How does a man so astoundingly brilliant manage to come off utterly clueless about so many things?

    • Sulla Felix

      How on earth can you say he’s ‘astoundingly brilliant’ when he continues to do such stupid crap

      • Melody Canterberry

        Mark, I THINK Kevin Miller was being sarcastic …

        • Kevin Miller

          When The Anointed One was elected I recall being bombarded with fawning media gushings proclaiming his incredible intellect. Who am I to suggest they might have somewhat overstated their case?

          • kim

            LOL. Somewhat?
            I know they love to be hysterical and overly dramatic, but declaring ‘The One’ as the Messiah, insisting he is the most brilliant man to ever live, etc., is more than ‘overstating their case’.

    • kim

      The only people who have ever said he is ‘astoundingly brilliant’ are himself, his wife, and his campaign staff and leftist media.
      And of course we can see by their words and actions that THEY would immediately recognize brilliance

    I too knows more about Judaism…. I watched Fiddlers on the Roof countless times. Haha

  • radjahshelduck

    Well in that case, I presume Obama knows what a “putz” is? If not, he needs to find a mirror.

  • Rosewould

    What a shmuck !

  • debdash

    How much more idiotic does this idiot get before the MSM concedes and admits they were wrong about their chosen one? He is an embarrassment to our country and all that hold it dear!!

    • kim

      Never. That is when they admit it. They will spend the rest of their lives insisting they were correct, and Americans were too stupid, backwards, bigoted and racist to see it. It is the only way they can hold on to the belief that they are relevant

    Yessir, folks – THE smartest pResident EVAH! There is absolutely nothing this guy doesn’t know more about than anyone else. Just ask him – he’ll tell ya!

  • Dominic Macchio

    The Obama campaign must go through a list of groups that he is down in the poles to and then he goes out and panders to that group. It’s taken him 3 1/2 years, just so happens to be an election year, to let everyone know how much he loves Isreal?

  • Shiori_Uyoku

    Yet he knows next to nothing about previous presidents. And economics. And whether his kids are male or female. And how many States there are. And that people from Austria speak German, not ‘Austrian’. etc., etc., etc….Also, Bush did it.
